Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "evaluate the performance of Penncross creeping bentgrass (Agrostis palustris L.) when grown on soils of different pH while subjected to various topdressing and cultivation (aeration) treatments." States that "soil pH of 6.4 produced a superior turf than pH 5.2 or one of 7.0 or higher. At the 5.2 level organic mater accumulated and wilt injury was more severe than at higher pH levels. Levels above 6.4 were not significantly superior in any reading taken in the study and were inferior in winter injury, root growth and resistance to crabgrass invasion. Of the four topdressing treatments, loam and loam-sand produced a superior turf than did sand or no topdressing. Spring and fall cultivation proved beneficial when followed by topdressing applications."
